Ousmane has been my full time chauffeur, since August 2015. I can say without reservation that Ousmane is absolutely the safest driver in Senegal.

Ousmane is a great worker, has never called in sick, is always very respectful, and is always punctual.  He is friendly, flexible, and easy going.  He is a fluent speaker of Wolof and French, his English is good and is constantly improving.  Ousmane has also done other light jobs for us; such as family shopping, and painting a room.   I very highly recommend Ousmane to anyone needing the best chauffeur in Senegal.  I would very much like help him to find a good job, with a good family.

Dosmestic Help: Housekeeper-Ama Dialllo

Ama has been taking care of my apartment since July 2016. She takes care of the place independently, from cleaning, ironing, laundry, etc. She is a great housekeeper and comes highly recommended by me.

Ama is a great worker, never calls in sick, is very respectful and is punctual. She is also very friendly, flexible, and easy going. She speaks French only but we still communicate fine with my limited French. I would highly recommend Ama to anyone that needs a great housekeeper for a reasonable price. Ama works for me 3 mornings a week and she would like to pick up additional clients to fill in the gaps. I would like to find a good job for her.

Please contact Ed Wirz at for any further information.
